  1. eBay Celebrates 25 Years … of theft, fraud and intimidation

    Ahhh remembering the past … lets look at a few key moments

    1) When Pierre went AWOL (after selling his junky NON working item)(can we find that guy and have him file an SNAD ?) and fabricated some “ideals” for the company he sold

    2) the continued hiring of bozo after bozo – none of whom had ANY experience in selling, selling online, wholesale, retail, etail or anything remotely close to that

    3) the day eBay declared war on its sellers (which continues to this day)

    4) the day eBay started the greatest theft of FVF ever – a VIG (like the mafia) on shipping (likethey will do with sales tax) – something they have nothing to do with

    5) the day they removed 2 way feedback

    6) the day they invented verowatch.com, VERO (itself), and went to war with sellers by backing manufacturers and then charging money to remove any seller they didnt like

    there are many many more – I invite everyone to describe YOUR best eBay 25 yr memory …. it will be THEFTASTIC!

  2. PACE306 – my top eBay25 moment would have to be that time back in February/March when fraudsters used hacked eBay accounts to sell products they didn’t have, then turned around and placed orders on my company’s direct site to “drop ship” to their eBay buyers using stolen credit cards and defrauding my company out of more than $50K in a little over a month.

    The best part of that moment is the fact that eBay dragged their feet addressing the issue then shuffled me off to their super secret PROACT (partnering with retailers offensively against crime and theft) ass(et) protection department, which has now ghosted me and stopped responding 2 months ago – meanwhile the hacking and fraud continues, and we are definitely not the only victims in this triangle fraud scheme.

    Yep, fun times.
